Honey BBQ Chicken Wraps

One of the hardest things about eating better is that starving feeling you get in between meals.

Usually right before I have my “lunch” (since I work nights, my lunch is usually at 6:30 or 7 in the morning) I get this overwhelming feeling to eat something. Anything. Lay a pile of dirt in front of my face and I’d probably eat it.

That’s where those cursed vending machines plague me. We’ve got an awesome vending company at work, and they stock our little marketplace full of fresh breakfast burritos and enchilada bowls. I was probably spending $20 a week on vending alone! They put the calories on the outside of the meals, but that didn’t stop me from stuffing my face full of all these cheesy bad things.

I can now say that I am one week vending machine free. Woo. It’s an addiction, it really is. A big reason why I haven’t made the trek to the breakroom all week is because I’m supplying myself with snacks that get me through the work day. Whether it is a handful of nuts, or some hummus, fruit—I just needed that something to carry me to the next meal so I wouldn’t gorge myself.

One snack thing I made this week were these wraps. Are they the most healthy things on earth? No. But you can take baby steps with your snacking routine. Instead of tortillas, try the whole wheat ones or lettuce wraps. I breaded my chicken but baked them instead of frying them—but you can easily skip that step entirely and just eat grilled chicken nuggets. Get rid of the cheese and snack on the chicken and cabbage instead. The world is your oyster.

What really makes these wraps delicious is the honey barbecue sauce. Grab a bottle of your favorite sauce and add a dash of honey and some hot sauce, and you’ve got this sublime sweet and spicy barbecue sauce. This is truly droolworthy.
